/ have an ideal far this University. My desire 
would have it a place where there is always a breath 
of freedom in the air; where a sound and various 
learning is taught heartily without sham or pretense; 
where the life and the teachings of Jesus furnish forth 
the ideal of right living and true manhood; where 
manners are gentle, and courtesies daily multiply 
between teacher and taught; where all classes and 
conditions and belie) s are welcome and men may rise, 
in earnest striving by the might of merit; where wealth 
is no prejudice and poverty no shame; where honorable 
labor, even rough labor of the hands, is glorified by 
high purpose and strenuous desire for the clearer air 
and the larger view; where there is a will to serve all 
high ends of a State struggling up out of ignorance 
into general power; where men are trusted to observe 
closely, to imagine vividly, to reason accurately, 
and to have about them some humility and some toler- 
ation; where, finally, Truth, shining patiently like a 
star, bids us advance, and we will not turn aside. —

The University of North 

The thing that has been of most benefit to me all my life is the fact that I was a student 
at the University of North Carolina. — Senator Vance. 

„. t The University of North Carolina was ordained 

of the people in the first Constitution of the State, 


One hundred and adopted in 1776, and received the grant of a 
charter from the Legislature in 1789. It is, there- 
fore, the oldest State University in the Southern States, and, in the 
entire Union, second only to the University of Pennsylvania. The 
corner stone of the old East Building was laid in 1793, and the 
University was opened to students in 1795. Since that date the 
progress of the institution has been constant, with the exception of 
a brief interruption at the close of the Civil War, and it has been 
maintained by the people of the State through legislative appropria- 
tions and bequests of lands, buildings, equipment and productive 
funds for the support of instruction and aid to its students. 

The Larger Since the academic year 1899-1900, $132,500 
University have been expended in improving the material 
Sc^S^Smfort equipment of the University. Three new buildings 

conventence liaVe ^en erecteC *- ^ tneSe tne ^ aiT ailC * Mary 

Ann Smith buildings are dormitories for the ac- 
commodation of students. They are fitted with every modern con- 
venience and safeguard of health. The Alumni Hall is a large 
building, splendidly constructed and reserved for the offices of 
administration and for lecture rooms. The year 1901-02 was 
marked also by the installation of a central heating plant, which 
supplies all of the buildings on the campus. This system, with 
the electric lights supplied by the same plant, insures comfort 
and safety to students. Health is also safeguarded by the new 
system of water works and sewerage. Both have been installed in 

all the buildings. The water works supply an abundance of pure, 
filtered water, and the sewers have been most carefully and scientific- 
ally constructed. 
These improve- 
ments make pos- 
sible a thorough 
system of baths 
and perfect sani- 

Two more 
buildings are now 
in process of 
construction: the 
Young Men's 
Christian Asso- 
ciation Building 
and the William 

Preston Byrmm, Jr., Gymnasium, 
readv for use in the Fall of 1904. 

Both will be completed and 


The largest in the 
history of the 

The' attendance for the present year will reach 
the large total of more than 600. Of this number 
over 400 are enrolled in the Academic Department. 

In this respect 
the University of 
North Carolina 
stands among 
the foremost 
southern educati- 
onal institutions. 

Increase of 
the Faculty 

New departments 
and professors; addi- 
tional instructors 
and assistants; new 
scientific apparatus. 

During the last 
three years im- 
portant additions 
have been made 

to the Faculty, which now numbers 66 members, of whom 35 are 

of professorial rank. 

The former Departrneni of Modern Languages has been divided 
Into the Departments of Romanic and Germanic Language . in 
charge of a lull professor, an associate professor and two assistants. 
The Departrneni of Economics and Finance has been created and 
placed in charge of an associate professor. 

The Department of the English language has been separated 
from thai of English Literature. Each is conducted by an inde- 
pendent professor; there are also an associate professor and two 

The Department of Biology lias been enlarged by the appoint- 
ment of an associate professor of Botany. In Chemistry the in- 
struction has been greatly broadened by the extension of the work 
in Organic Chemistry, and the addition of courses in Physiological 
and Physical Chemistry. An additional professor has been assigned 
to the Department of History, and a rearrangement of courses has 
been made. The material equipment of the Department of Phar- 
macy has been doubled, and a School of Mining has been organized. 
Finally, an additional Physical Laboratory has been equipped for 
experimental work in electrical engineering. 

Extension of The University has established a full course in 
tne Medical Medicine, leading to the degree of M.D. The 

work of the first two ^years will be conducted at 
tific r t racing now 11 " the seat of the University as in the past. The 
University. e remainder of the course is given at Raleigh, 

with its hospital and clinical facilities. The 
medical students of the State may now obtain excellent instruction 
within its borders, and at greatly reduced cost. 

Purposes The purposes of the University, in its relation 

of tKe 


: to the State, are manifold. Its service must first 

be directed to the educational interests of the 
stateaSTocietyin community, and its aim is to offer to the young 
mUat?nt7iLlt g uar' men of North Carolina and the South, of every 

religious faith, political belief and geographical 
section, opportunities for every type of culture — moral, intellectual 
and religious. The University training makes the most of a man 
that he is capable of becoming; develops the intellectual powers, 
broadens the sympathies and interests and gives a wider outlook 
upon life and its activities. In this phase of its work, the Univer- 
sity aims to impart liberal culture, self-reliance, respect for the 


opinions of others and love of truth ; to make men broad and force- 
ful, clear in observation and thought and effective in execution. 

A further pur- 
pose of the Uni- 
versity is to stim- 
ulate and elevate 
the educational 
ideals of the 
State. Its grad- 
uates hold chairs 
in colleges, con- 
duct the second- 
ary schools and, 
in general, direct 
the educational 
life of the people. 
The University 
also aims to give, through its special schools, that professional 
training which shall fit its students for effective work in the various 
learned professions. 

Finally, the courses of instruction are so designed in breadth of 
treatment and scope of subjects as to supplement the work of 
many schools and colleges in the State, and to offer opportunities 
for advanced study and research to students who seek to increase 
their intellectual equipment by the study of a wider range of sub- 
jects or by specialization in a particular branch. 

The University is situated in the town of Chapel

reverent quiet and all sections. Ine cJimatic advantages are many. 
Chapel Hill is situated on an eminence of granite 
with a considerable elevation, and is free from the dampness and 
malarial influences of the coastwise sections. The winters are 
mild, and the air is clear and dry. The mean temperatures for the 
months of the college session since 1820 are: September, 71.3; 
October, 59.6; November, 49.9; December, 42.6; January, 39.8; 
February, 44.3; March, 49; April, 59.2; May, 67.8. The site of the 
University was happily chosen, also, because of its beauty and the 
character of the environment afforded to its students. The com- 


munity is quiet and free from distracting influences; Its streets are 
wide and heavily shaded, and the hills and forests of the neighbor- 
ing sections afford every opportunity for sport and recreation. 

Chapel Hill is situated on a branch of the Southern Railway. 
Two daily passenger trains connect at University .Junction with 
trains to and from Greensboro and Raleigh.

direction and force to the enthusiasm for debating which has pre- 
vailed in the past seven years. There are frequent intersociety 
contests, which give valuable training in the art of debate and 
prepare contestants for the intercollegiate contests in which the 
University has been most successful. The societies for special 


culture, the Elisha Mitchell Scientific Society, the Shakspeare 
Club and the Philological Club, offer unusual facilities \'<>v original 
research and study. Meetings are held monthly, and papers are 
read and discussed. Students are encouraged to attend and to 
contribute to the programs and discussions. The North Carolina 
Historical Society is located at the University. Its work is open 
to all students and irives access to valuable historical material.

The University campus contains forty-eight 
acres of land, affording ample ground for build- 
ings and for all sorts of athletic sports. There are, 
contiguous to the campus, five hundred acres of 
forest land, which is partly laid off into walks 
and drives. The University has seventeen buildings, 
which afford ample room for lecture halls, labora- 
tories, dormitories, gymnasium and Y. M. C. A. 
halls. Five of these buildings are large and new structures, thor- 
oughly modern in style. The Carr Building, the gift of General 
J. S. Carr, of Durham, affords accommodation to eighty students, 
with every modern convenience. The Alumni Building is one of 
the finest buildings in this State. It is used for offices of adminis- 
tration and for lecture rooms. The Mary Ann Smith Building 
contains nearly forty rooms for students. The Gymnasium is 
the gift of Judge William Preston Bynum, of Charlotte, in memory 
of his grandson, William Preston Bynum, Jr., of the Class of 1893. 
It is now in process of construction and will be ready for use in the 
Fall of 1004. Its appointments will be modern and complete. 

The Young Men's Christian Association Building, likewise in 
process of erection, will greatly increase the efficiency of the Asso- 
ciation's work, which is already of far-reaching importance. The 
funds for this building were contributed by students, Alumni and 
other friends. All dormitories, lecture-rooms, laboratories and 
other University buildings are heated by hot water and lighted by

THe in ti lr Academic Department instruction is 

Bachelor s offered in three general groups of study leading 

to the degree of Bachelor of Arts. Four years 

are usually required for the completion of this course. It furnishes 

a broad, seeure foundation of liberal culture, together with oppor- 
tunities for specialization in single branches. The principle of 

election, in a conservative and salutary form, is recognized in the 
arrangement of this course. In the Freshman and Sophomore 
years of each group, there are both definite requirements and also 
election between connected studies, so arranged that each student 
may have a well-rounded course. The work of the Junior and 
Senior years is entirely elective, and each student may select such 
studies as will be of special use to him in his chosen profession or 
business ; he must, however, obtain the approval of the Dean of the 
University for the studies selected. It is urgently recommended 
that the selection be made on the principle of continuity and sym- 

Require- The subjects and examinations required for 

merits for entrance into the University depend upon the 
group of studies to be pursued after entrance. 
admS?n S shouid Candidates for admission to the course leading to 
on e SVrm tlficates the degree must satisfy the following requirements r 
UnhStyf the For all candidates for entrance: 

English — Rhetoric and Composition upon sub- 
jects chosen from the list of books announced in the catalogue. 

Mathematics — Arithmetic; a good school Algebra through Pro- 
gression and Logarithms; College Algebra to Quadratic Equations; 
three books of plane Geometry. 

History — Either the histories of Greece, Rome and the United 
States, or of the United States- and England. 

The following additional requirements depend upon the group 
of studies chosen. 

Group 1. 

Latin — Caesar (two books); Cicero (four orations); Vergil (six 
books); Composition. 

Greek — Anabasis (three books) ; Composition. 

Group 2. 

The requirement in Latin, or in Greek, and in addition the 
equivalent of one year's work in Physics and in French or German. 


Group 3. 

The equivalent of one year's work each in Physics and in French 
and German. 

In general the University accepts, without examination, students 
who present certificates on the blank form provided for the purpose, 
signed by the principal of an approved school. But the right is 
reserved to examine such students when necessary in the opinion 
of the faculty. 

No advanced standing may be granted for work done at institu- 
tions below collegiate standing except after a satisfactory examina-

Over nine hundred 
students aided by 
loans and scholar- 
ships within twenty 

The income of certain gifts to the University 
affords one hundred and seven scholarships for 
meritorious students of slender means. There is, 
also, the Deems Fund, which provides loans for 
the very needy who show unusual merit. 

The number of scholarships and loans is limited, 
but they are given without reference to county or State lines, to 
students of talent, character and financial need. These facts must 
be established by testimonials. All applications for scholarships 
and loans must be filed in the President's office before August 15th. 
The former State law giving a scholarship to each county was 
repealed some years ago. 


This law is applic- 
able only to 
students in the 
Academic Depart- 

Free tuition is given in the Academic Depart- 
ment to sons of ministers, to candidates for the 
ministry, to young men under bodily infirmity, to 
public school teachers and to those who intend 
to teach. 


Graduate Department 

Admission The development of the University has made it 
a, *d necessary to enlarge the scope of the graduate 

egrees WO rk and to put a greater emphasis upon it. The 

ir P a e d C ^t C e°sTud S ents. growth of the faculty has rendered it possible to 
offer many additional courses, and these now 
form a distinct department of the University. 

The Graduate Department offers special advanced instruction 
in all the subjects named above under the College Department. 
The Degrees of Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy are con- 
ferred. Graduates of other institutions are admitted to these 
courses without examination, provided they can satisfy the pro- 
fessors whose courses they wish to attend that they are prepared 
to profit by the work offered. The attainment of the University 
degrees by such students will depend upon their own ability and 
the thoroughness of their previous preparation. Special students 
not candidates for degrees are also received, and graduates of the 
University may study for the Master's Degree without residence. 

Expenses There is no charge for tuition in the case of 

graduates of colleges. An application for an 
advanced degree must be accompanied by the registration fee 
of $10. 

Admission Graduates of higher institutions for the training 
°+ "Worn* 1 * £ women are admitted to such advanced classes 
as the faculty may direct. Also those who have 
been engaged in teaching are admitted to the same classes.

The first two years of instruction are given at the seat of the 
University, at Chapel Hill, to avoid duplication of expensive labora- 
tory equipment, and to secure all the advantages of the Academic 
courses in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, etc. This department is 
under the charge of Dr. R. H. Whitehead, Dean. 

Methods of The course includes Chemistry, Biology, His- 
Instruction tology, Physics, Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, 
Minor Surgery, Materia Medica and Toxicology. 
Close contact with the instructors guarantees thorough work. The 
two years of instruction given here are accepted by medical colleges 
of high standing as equivalent to the first two years of their course. 
The Medical Department has laboratories of Pathology and Bac- 
teriology supplied with modern apparatus for experimental and 
lecture work; also a dissecting hall for an extensive study of prac- 
tical anatomy. The laboratories of Chemistry and Biology are also 
open to medical students. Excellent equipment is provided for the 
study of these branches. 

Courses The work in this department covers two years. 

It is divided as follows : 

First year. Physics, Chemistry, Histology, Anatomy, Physi-

Summer School for 

General The Summer School of the University of North 

Statement Carolina was established in 1877. The total num- 
ber of teachers who have attended is 3,694. The 
large equipment of the University, fine library, shady campus, and 
healthy location, make it an ideal place for holding such a school. 

Faculty The Faculty for the coming summer numbers 

more than twenty instructors and a dozen special 
lecturers. A number of the most prominent and successful teachers 
from all parts of the United States have been secured. An appro- 
priation three times as large as usual has made it possible to gather 
a larger and stronger faculty than ever before. 

Courses Instruction will be given in all subjects taught 

in the common schools of the State, and in such 
higher branches as are most needed for the improvement of the 
teachers. There 
will also be thor- 
ough courses in 
manual training, 
methods and 
school manage- 
ment given by 
experts and spe- 
cialists. Certifi- 
cates will be 
given to all those 
who remain to 
the end of the 
term in attend- 
ance upon three 
or more courses. 

Expenses The school will begin June 13 and close July S, 

lasting four weeks. The only fee charged by the 
University is one of $5. Board and lodging can be secured for 
from $9.00 to $10.00 for the four weeks. Special dormitories will 
be prepared for women. 


General Items 

Religious The University, as a Stale institution, is non- 

Interests denominational. Though controlled by no special 
sect, it recognizes religion and morality as the 
basis of character. The spirit of its instruction and college life is 
broad and sympathetic, but essentially conservative, devout, 
Christian. The religious influences in the University are manifold, 
active and well-directed. Morning prayers are held daily in Gerrard 
Hall. Attendance is required. Each month, also, a sermon is 

delivered by one 
of the Univer- 
sity preachers. 
There are special 
courses of in- 
struction in the 
English Bible, 
and lectures on 
Bible History are 
delivered each 

Sill Sunday morning 

JH in Gerrard Hall. 
' ^_^_ jj ^ ne ^ oun & Men's 

Christian Asso- 
ciation meets four times each week, conducts a number of systematic 
courses for the study of the Bible and of Missions, and assists in 
Sunday school work in the town and county. 

Discipline The University endeavors to make young men 

manly and self-reliant, and develop character by 
educating the conscience. The discipline of the institution is ad- 
ministered upon a basis of honor and manhood in its students. 
Courtesy and consideration prevail in all relations, and the friction 
of the college life begets mutual regard, sympathy and respect 
between the teacher and taught. The faculty may, however, at 
their discretion, admonish, suspend or dismiss students for neglect 
of duty or for misconduct. 


Labor and 
Self Help 

"Here honorable 
labor, even rough 
labor, of the hands 
is glorified by high 

It is confidently believed that no institution 
offers wider opportunities for self-help to meritor- 
ious students of slender means. The desire is that 
no worthy boy, however poor, shall ever be turned 
away for lack of means. 
There are a number of ways in which a young 
man can pay in part or in whole his expenses while a student at 
the University. Between one-fourth and one-third of the students 
at the University are thus helping themselves. The following are 
some of the forms of employment available: Teachers, printers, 
stenographers, typewriters, bookkeepers, tellers or monitors, 
waiters, wood saywers, janitors, clerks, clothes pressers, machinists, 
agents for clothing, books, athletic supplies, etc. Work of this 
kind is rarely in the gift of the University authorities. Bright 
young men who have a will to help themselves generally find the way. 

Care of 



Thorough sewer- 
age, pure water and 
central heating; the 
best of hygienic 

The health of the students is the special charge 
of the Medical Department of the University. On 
payment of a small medical fee all students receive 
the careful attention of ftie University physicians, 
Dr. Whitehead and Dr...'Mangum. They are, by 
this arrangement, relieved of the possible expense 
of large medical 
bills in case of 
prolonged illness, 
and parents may 
rest assured that 
their sons will 
have the best 
medical advice 
if they need it. 
An infirmary has 
recently been 
built and com- 
fortably fur- 
nished, contain- 
ing improved 
equipment for 
the care of the 
sick. A trained nurse is in constant attendance at the infirmary.

ymnasium is equipped with 

The University lin- 
eal training. The j 
modern appliances for exercise, and is under the 

supervision of an experienced director. Attend- 
ance at the gymnasium is required daily of all academic students 
except Seniors. 

The athletic 
interests are con- 
trolled by the 
students, with 
the advice and 
supervision of 
the faculty. The 
baseball teams 
compete success- 
fully with those 
of the largest 
colleges of the 
country, and in 
football and 
track athletics 
the University is 
one of the leaders among Southern colleges.

Cost to The University receives from the State this year 

tKe State an appropriation of $37,500. The appropriation, 
if collected per capita, would amount to about 2 
cents per annum to each inhabitant; but the tax is paid entirely by 
property, and the mass of the people in the State really contribute 
little or nothing to its support. A man who pays only a poll tax 
contributes nothing. A man listed at $100 pays less than 1 cent 
annually to the 
regular appropri- 
ation, at $500 
less than 5 cents, 
at $1,000 less 
than 10 cents, at 
$5,000 less than 
50 cents. The 
average taxpayer 
is listed at less 
than $500, and, 
therefore, pays 
less than 5 cents. 
About four fifths 
of the taxpayers 
pay less than 10 cents a year for'an appropriation of $37,500, for the 
support of the University. 

The tax for the University does not come from the public school 
fund. It is a tax on property alone, and its advantages accrue to 
the sons of the poor. It is a tax of the property-holders for the 
benefit of themselves, their neighbors and the State. It is an 
application of Christianity to government. 


The The University is the logical head of the entire 

University system of public educational institutions. This is 
_ ... the American idea, and everv State in the Union 


Schools nas a University a1 the head oi its school system. 

The University of North Carolina has always been 
foremost in fostering and developing the schools. For the last 
twenty years forty per cent, of each graduating class has gone into 
the school service. There is a Department of Pedagogy for the 

training of teach- 
ers and a Summer 
School for those 
who are already 
teaching and 
^^SH^&I H wno are unable 
to attend its 
regular sessions. 
Thus a great 
many teachers 
have been fitted 
for work in 
the secondary 
schools. The 
wider interest in 
education during 
the past year has 
increased the demand for teachers in the lower public schools. To 
supply this demand it will be necessary to add a distinct Normal 
Department to the University, with special teachers for the subjects 
required in the public schools. This will be done as soon as the 
necessary funds are provided.
